Does anyone know (hopefully from personal experience) if the CoolIT E.C.O will easily install on a Gigabyte MA790X-UD4P?
The product claims AM2+/3 compatibility. However, a lot of people are having problems with some motherboards. The product does not come with an AMD backplate, and assumes the board will be using a standard backplate from AMD, and now some people cannot get the device to install without completely forcing it or having to mod.
I am just wondering if the product installs properly on this board without having to bottom it out, buy an aftermarket backplate kit, etc.
I purchased the cooler, and it is in the mail. Then I got wind of these issues.
It will, no problem, its just people don't know how much pressure it really take to use the AMD pressure bracket, which is more more efficient than the intel push pin.
Like I said, you will be fine and don't be afraid to add a little pressure on the braket. The motherboard and socket are designed to handle high amounts of pressure!
